This will trigger some comment from the usual suspects (fuk u michel chicka) but it's a pretty good read. There's no doubting his passion...just everything else.

I would post the whole article but it's pretty wordy.

I'm one who doesn't think he did a bad job in the circumstances. By all accounts his players loved working for him, he's a good coach and was an All Blacks side away from being a World Cup winner. Plus all the entertaining RAGE moments he has.

Not bad - not a long note. He's more articulate (more considered and less emotional) in writing.

On reflection (not sure that's something Michael himself does) it was tough to follow the complete highs of the final in '15 (how good was that to get that team to the final). From there it was always tougher.

You can't doubt his passion, his support of the players.

He's the type of guy you'd want going into battle, just not the one creating a complex strategy.

A lot of teams would benefit from his time with them.

If Italy don't secure Howley he would be good (they've tried building pathways and structure - they just need success).

That passion would be good within the executive of the ARU
